Whilst studying my Nutrition Masters degree my passion for keeping fit and healthy grew rapidly. After completing my degree I started working for a UK based snack company and although working in the food industry gave me a real insight into the power of food labelling and marketing of products, I decided I wanted to switch my career to something I am passionate about ...exercise and nutrition and that is why I am now at UFIT!
My own training involves both endurance and strength training, but my goal is to be healthy in all senses of the word - it’s all about the mind-body balance!
As a trainer I really want to get to know my clients, understand what motivates them so that I can tailor-make their programmes accordingly and help them achieve their goals.
The thing I enjoy most about working with my clients is being part of their fitness and health improvement journey and helping them achieve their goals whilst having fun in the process. I want to make a difference to my clients lives, hopefully helping them achieve a long term change and maybe even achieve something they didn’t initially believe they could.
